Two lead developers talked about the upcoming cross-gen release of God of War: Ragnarok. The game director in particular was unusually honest.
God of War: Ragnarök will be the third cross-gen title this year. Animation Director Bruno Velazquez now spoke about this decision and the intention behind it Eurogamer.
The lead developer once again clarified that an old-gen version was planned from the start. Already in June 2021 we reported about it, when the editor-in-chief of VGC found out about it. You can imagine the reason for this: Sony doesn’t want to do without the PS4 fan base.
“So we knew from the start it was going to be a PS4 game. We’re going to make it the best PS4 game we can make. Our goal was to surpass 2018’s God of War in every way. Having the PS5 version is the icing on the cake,” explains Velazquez.
The icing on the cake are the DualSense functions, the 3D sound, better graphics and smoother performance. That’s why the current-gen version is “the best way” to experience the game. However, the PS4 version will “push the veteran console to the limit.”
Velazquez concludes, “This philosophy and approach has helped us set the goals for ourselves that we want to create a great PS4 experience and an even better PS5 experience.”
Sequels aren’t always a big step
in one further interview Game Director Eric Williams also spoke up. He openly and honestly admitted: There could be concerns as to whether the further development compared to the predecessor is big enough. But he doesn’t think a drastic change is absolutely necessary.
“Sequels aren’t always such a big step. They will be refined and they will be a continuation – especially in the area of history. It would have taken us ages to redo the whole game and then continue the story,” he said.
